Cases in each volume are listed in the prefatory table. The United States Tax Court is a federal trial court of record established by Congress under Article I of the U.S. Constitution, section 8 providing (in part) that Congress has the power to "constitute Tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court. “The Tax Court specializes in adjudicating disputes over federal income tax, generally prior to the time at which formal tax assessments are made by the Internal Revenue Service. Though taxpayers may choose to litigate tax matters in a variety of legal settings, outside of bankruptcy, the Tax Court is the only forum in which taxpayers may do so without having first paid the disputed tax in full. Parties who contest the imposition of a tax may also bring an action in any United States District Court, or in the United States Court of Federal Claims; however these venues require that the tax be paid first, and that the party then file a lawsuit to recover the contested amount paid (the "full payment rule”).” Contents 8 Findings of Fact 8 Background 8 John Hancock’s History9 Investment Process and Review10 Leasing10 LILO and SILO Transactions 10 Basic Structure 15 History 17 Due Diligence 18 The Hoosier Transaction 19 The LILO Test Transactions 20 OBB LILO20 Lease and Sublease23 End of Sublease Term25 SNCB 2 and SNCB 5 Lot 1 LILO Transactions25 Lease and Sublease28 End of Sublease Term 28 The SILO Test Transactions 29 TIWAG29 Lease and Sublease33 End of Sublease Term35 Two Dortmund Transactions35 Lease and Sublease38 End of Sublease39 SNCB SILO39 Grant and Subgrant42 End of Subgrant Term 43 Tax Returns, Notices of Deficiency, and Trial 43 Procedural History48 Trial 53 Opinion 53 Burden of Proof53 Principal Place of Business54 Leveraged Lease Transactions54 Frank Lyon58 LILO and SILO Litigation 77 The Test Transactions 78 Economic Substance79 Objective Inquiry88 Subjective Inquiry89 Substance Over Form91 OBB and SNCB LILO Transactions110 SILO Test Transactions 145 Interest Deductions 147 Original Issue Discount 149 Transaction Expenses 149 Conclusion NOTE: NO FURTHER DISCOUNTS FOR ALREADY REDUCED SALE ITEMS.
